We lost 2 great designer/innovators with these 2 .  Sad to see the OG passing and leaving us with some of the present fare that are all about the $$$ over solid, basic design work.  Audio jewelry is fine, but give me sonics over the pretty face.

Andrew Fletcher, keyboardist and founding member of Depeche Mode at 60. Now, this was totally unexpected.

Olivia Newton-John has lost her 30 year-long battle with metastasized breast cancer.  A beautiful person, lady, spirit and soul is gone.

Living with a cancer diagnosis is very, very hard and she exuded nothing but class and grace during her illness.
Live well in the place of our Lord! ❤️
